one more time, I'm gonna throw something at my television. I am so sick of their version of this song.

How about you guys? Any songs you're sick of hearing?

Most of my family listens to mainstream country... believe me I have tried to convert them. I am not a big fan of the song, nor the Dixie Chicks for that matter; but, at least they are trying to do something different by expanding the country sound with a bit of bluegrass (which I don't appreciate much either). What I'm trying to say is that I don't like country, but I'll acknowledge anyone pushing musical boundaries that don't fit the normal molds of tired categories.

Oh ya, I'm getting really sick of that Kid Rock duet song with Sheryl Crow... that and Nelly's, well anything by Nelly.

The thing I'm most sick of though is the use of the word "conformity" in pop-punk songs. By using this word aren't you conforming to all the stigmas associated with this genre. Aren't you "sheep" as well, flowing in a flock of dirty clothes and false attitude. Stupid teenagers...

My problem with Dixie Chicks Landslide: Smashing Pumpkins just covered it a few years back, and did a far better job. Why would you want to cover a song that has been covered so often, and covered better than you can even try to cover it?

PS- That Kid Rock/Sheryl Crow thing is complete crap

I still have yet to hear the Kid/Sheryl pairing.


And yes, if I hear that song (or the beginning of it) one more time I will hurl. I loved the SP version, but god, leave it alone now!

Mmhm, Smashing Pumpkins' version was good.

This version just gets sooooooo overplayed.

And yeah, I agree with those of you who said they're getting annoyed with the Kid Rock/Sheryl Crow duet.

Also getting annoyed with Shania Twain's "I'm Gonna Getcha Good" (but I think that has more to do with the fact that I hate the video and I see it a lot in the morning if I'm watching videos on T.V.).

And John Mayer's "Your Body Is A Wonderland" is getting a little old, too.

I don't get the John Mayer thing, either. He seems way too bland.

I really don't care for "Your Body is a Wonderland." At all. Nothing against him, really. It just makes me want to claw my own eyes out.
